Jack O. Newborn Story

The Newborn Story of Jack O.

Celebrating the Homecoming of this precious little brother in Raleigh, North Carolina

Newborn sessions are by far my realest and most laidback session I offer (outside fo documentary birth of course:P). By nature they are all about capturing those little details and moments and each newborn story is so unique to the personalities of each family. I go into each with the same idea of pairings, groups and details but I swear no session ever turns out quite the same.

For this stunning family I was there to celebrate the homecoming of sweet baby Jack. Who was surrounded by the love and adoration of not only mom and dad but two big personalitied sisters. Seeing the laughter and joy in their home was truly beautiful. I love how with home sessions you really have to learn to adapt, rarely does every person want to participate at the same time (especially juggling older siblings too) so you just learn how to dance to the rhythm of their unique family. In the moments that these sweet sisters wanted to love on baby brother we captured it and when they were ready to do their own thing we were able to take those moments to cherish some intimate moments with just mom, dad and baby. Each frame was filled with the authentic silliness of their family of 5 and the sweet sacred details of bringing a new life into their home. Baby Jack literally just went for the ride which I foresee being his laidback personality to come. He just loved to be close to them all and adapted to the attention and snuggles.

Thank you so much to this family for letting me celebrate your family in this way and for welcoming me into your home to capture these memories for you. It is always an honor for me!

2018 A Year In Review: Part 2

2018 A year in Review

Part 2

The Year of Commitment

I am not a disciplined person. If you spent a minute to read Part One of this year’s review you’d see I barely scraped by with New year goals for 2018. It’s honestly never even been a goal of mine (to be more disciplined) but here I sit in 2019 and I really need it. Now the word discipline sounds awful to me, very restricting and suffocating so I’m going with Commitment. I’ve let creativity and honesty be my greatest characteristics for so long and while I love those parts about me, it’s starting to feel like I’m not super involved in my happiness. Because I don’t push myself to stay on track or finish a goal, I’m really just letting my days pass by. I want to be more committed this year to more than just my business and husband because i have the capacity for more. I want to fully commit 2019 to achieving personal goals, lifestyle changes and ambitions. I want to feel successful, this time next year and like some or even all of the intentions below were really invested in.

I want to be active and exercise everyday.

I want to eat better and learn more about what my body can handle and can’t.

I want to limit the amount of time I spend watching tv and comparing myself to others on the internet.

I want to be way more selfless to my partner ( like i want to be one of those wives everyone thinks loves their husband TOO much and does TOO much for his arrogant ass) Because that’s not at all me and probably wont ever be but I want to give it a try :P

I want to photograph more and more births, and meet more women who just understand that birth and art can truly be melded together and that it’s worth it to invest in your moments.

I want to meet more people and like more people unconditionally.

I want to learn how to love myself too and be proud of where I am.

I want to get back into my painting, drawing and journaling. That used to be my way of finding peace, calming anxiety and expressing my heart but now a days I just pour a glass of wine and watch the Office and hope the anxiety will go away.

I want to not sleep in so much (even though I love it) a successful person gets up early and I want a little more feeling of that success.

These aren’t really my “goals” per say because I really can’t take another year of feeling like I achieved no personal goals. But they are my ambitions for this coming year and I am speaking it into existence right now that I will be a more committed person. It doesn’t happen overnight and I’m trying to be more gracious about that but I’m also trying to look at the word committed and discipline not as a sentencing to a boring life but to a better and happier life because I’m putting more into it rather than letting it happen to me.

2018 was a happy year. I got to photograph so many stories that have shaped me for the better. My business grew from a little transplanted seedling to a full on garden that is still growing. I traveled and saw elephants, lions, leopards and all the other African animals so many may never see. I created a project I’m so proud of called The Motherhood Project that allowed me to get creative and learn so much more about womanhood and motherhood; thank you Lindsay for making this past year and project so amazing. So please do not misunderstand my goals for 2019, they are coming from a place of wanting to just be committed to the changes I want to see and opening myself to have the capacity to really experience more.

Thank you to all my people and I look forward to another year creating! If you’ve chosen a name for 2019 I would love to hear it so please leave it in the comments!

And of course this collection of images below are my favorites(atleast part two of my favorites), they are full of the raw and powerful quality I want my work to express. There is nudity and there is blood in some of my work, yes, but I think there is so much power and beauty in our bodies and I just couldn’t censor my favorites. All photos have been approved and released by the client for sharing.

Jude W. Newborn

Jude W. Newborn 

Hanna Hill Photography | Durham, NC Newborn Photography

These photos have swiftly become some of my favorites. The coziness of this beautiful first time mom snuggled up with her sweet hubby and little boy, melts be every time. I met Lia and Andrew through a mutual friend and super early if I recall in their pregnancy. Lia really wanted to meet and hear details first so she could best choose the perfect session to celebrate her little one. And I loved that, I love being able to grab a cup of coffee and talk babies, birth and photography! 

It ended up being perfect that she chose an at home newborn session. Because soon after little Jude was born they all ended up moving from this sweet first home they shared as a family of three. Getting to celebrate not just those perfect little details but also the place and setting of where the memories were made always brings another level of depth and story to photos.

There was something so timeless about the style of this session, the joy on their faces and the color bring me back to the 1970s/60s and I completely love it. The whole session screams young love, first time parents, first home, and just the beginning of their long and beautiful story. One of my favorites moments (which was really this whole session:P) was when I asked if they wanted to bring little Jude outside, to get a little fresh air and celebrate the sweet season he was born in. They of course were down and those little sweet moments of them as a family of three on the steps of their home bring me so much joy. Those are the moments they will look back on when Jude goes off to college or moves out of their home for the first time. They will revel in the memories of bringing their little baby home and the sleepless nights they shared. They will cry thinking about how tiny he was and how big he has grown to be. They will be so proud to have been his parents! ... it gives me chills :)

 

If you have a little one on the way and want to celebrate with a sweet Newborn session this I would love to hear from you!

Ok can we talk back up cameras? I am in a constant struggle on what next to invest in, I'd really love a 24-70mm for my Fall season of births and for my vacation to Kenya in December but my back up camera is very poor(like i'm ashamed to even say it :P) Would you invest in a nicer back up camera first? or go with the lens? My Canon 6D is only 2 years old.  Getting the back up seems like the responsible thing to do but the lens seems like the thing I want to do.  I also have big dreams of getting the Mark IV and making my 6D the back up but that wont be for another year or so to save up.  Also if I wanted to get the lens and back up what would be a good camera that runs lower price then the Canon 6D like a nicer crop sensor? would that even be worth it? ugh the debate within me is so real right now

Samuel M. : Newborn

Samuel M. In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session |

Raleigh Birth & Newborn Photographer 

"I hope you don't mind

that I put down in words

how wonderful life is,

now you're in the world"

-Elton John

Samuel M Lifestyle Newborn | Hanna Hill Photography | Raleigh Birth and Family Photographer | Durham Birth Photographer

You may not be an Elton John fan but that song still to this day plays in my head when I photograph newborn sessions. Pretty much any session with babies where it feels like the whole world has just changed because that little one is finally here. Even as a photographer I can feel the shift each time I come into a family's home to photograph the sweet newborn season. Things are quieter, messier and oh so much slower. It's a beautiful thing when a new baby can help a family slow down and take stock of the joy and gifts they have.

Yes of course along with this transition and joy comes exhaustion and change but with Samuel's  Newborn session the main thing I kept thinking was, this little one has brought so much joy and peace. He has filled a space in this home that was once empty. As the bright morning light poured in all around our session, little Samuel dozed off to sleep. It was serene, he wasn't too fussy and he truly wanted simply be close to his mom and dad. It was a beautiful thing to watch. 

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions have such an energy and personality to them and I love that. Everything from the way they decorate their home to their affectionate touches all plays into this beautiful story of their family. These are candid celebrations of who Samuel is and how his joyful childhood will continue and I get to be the first to capture that part of their story. It's a true honor.

Titus L: Birth Story Revisited

Titus L. : Birth Story Revisited | 1 Year later

One year ago today this little one was brought into the world. Photographing births has always been a deep passion of mine; one that truly felt reignited by this little guy's birth. I remember walking out the hospital the morning he was born and literally jumping because I had finally been reunited with my passion. Watching Ellen fiercely work through her contractions, make hard choices, fight through the exhaustion while still maintaining this pure sense of peace and joy that she would soon meet her son was just the amount of empowerment I needed to see. Whatever fear she felt she continuously fought against it. I remember the room being filled with their birth playlist which was this incredible mixture of soft hymns and the most joyful gospel music you can think of. I remember how after sleeping in the hospital room all night we woke up to this gorgeous morning light. I remember looking up to see Jaremy just holding Ellen's hand, laughing and praying with her knowing that their little boy would be there soon. That morning light made each photo and moment that much more hopeful and captivating. It streamed through the room just as Titus was brought earth side and I remember thinking "my god, this job is everything." 

You may be wondering, why is Hanna rewriting and sharing a blog post from one year ago when she is 15-30 blog posts behind. Well thats a great question. I realized that in one year my passion for birth photography has grown like a wildfire in my spirit. My style and desire to capture that authentic, raw emotion that is present in every sacred birthing space has only solidified. That spirit and style was just re-beginning when I wrote this story last year. I was just remembering a passion I held a little captive in my heart. Without even reason I found myself going back through this birth and finding new details and moments I had lost when I posted it before. I found myself reworking the color, light and composition and wanted to be able to share it again in celebration of both growth as a business and my passion for this work. This new blog for me is a reflection, reinvigoration of an already beautiful story just with a new perspective one year later. I obviously won't be able to reblog every birth each year as my style grows and changes but there really was something so special about this birth that made me feel pretty much just called to re share and retell it in a new way. 

If you want to take a look at last years orignal post you can do so through this link.

You'll see that I've added a lot more moments never before shared. It's crazy how much can change in 1 year. Cheers to little Titus today on his first birthday!
